TIGER TRACKS

• Clemson clinched its first top-four seeding at the ACC Tournament since 2011 when head coach Brad Brownell was in his first season at Clemson.

• The Tigers were predicted to finish 13th in the ACC according to the media during the preseason and proceeded to finish tied for 3rd. The jump of 10 places from preseason to postseason is the largest in ACC history since the preseason poll was inaugurated in 1970.

• A trio of Tigers earned All-ACC recognition: Marcquise Reed (second team), Gabe DeVoe (honorable mention) and Elijah Thomas (all-defensive team).

• Marcquise Reed tallied his 11th 20-point outing of the season with 21 points in the regular season finale at Syracuse.

• Gabe DeVoe remains 11th all-time in the Clemson record book for threes in a career (154). He needs just one more to tie for 10th.

• The Tigers’ win over Florida State marked a new program record for ACC wins during the regular season with 11. The 11 wins ties for the most all-time in any conference for Clemson. (Posted 11 wins in the Southern Conference in 1951-52).
